    Absolutely wonderful, delightful, the most beautiful garden I have ever been to. I enjoyed very much my visit, owners are lovely. I'll try to go there again in my next visit to England.

    We visited here a few weeks ago and were delighted by the magical gardens they were a delight and an enchantment, Tim Burton should have made Alice here rather than at Antony as it has an eccentric and quirkly charm which evokes the land of the imagination and dreams, I especially liked the unicorn in the cool green lights and lavender scented borders.

    Gardens are planted with style and flair and abandon, wild and romantic, in late summer it looked perfect. Children will love the fairy tale quality to many of the secret rooms and corridors that make up this garden. We were pleased to go on a tour of the house, filled with amazing objects and paintings. The staff and family were all lovely and made the visit a joy. This jewell of a house and garden is highly recomended.

    Rather beautiful gardens ruined by rude and objectionable owner. If you must put money in this persons pocket, then at least take a picnic to avoid the useless cafe and it staff, that fall over themselves to be unhelpful.

    Visited Cothay House and Gardens on a group visit mid June - the day they were filming for Gardeners World. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their visit. Gorgeous setting. Gardens have something for everyone, with different planting in the various 'rooms' within the yew hedges, as well as larger open areas with mature shrubs. Delightful. Would recommend the House Tour if you are able - and finish off with a cream tea!
